Oscars: 2016 Winner Predictions and Full List

revenant-gallery-16-gallery-imageOscars: 2016 Winner Predictions and Full List

After “The Revenant” scored 12 nominations on Thursday morning, you have to start thinking that the HFPA favoring “The Revenant” to “Spotlight” wasn’t just a fluke.

We’ll watch and follow the momentum, there is still plenty of time before the Oscars, but we’ve seen this momentum change at the end all too often in the past few years. Primarily when it was supposed to go to “Boyhood” but went to “Birdman” and in 2011 when it was supposed to go to “The Social Network” but went to “The King’s Speech.”

Watch for the PGA and DGA winners as well to notice any significant momentum shift. “Spotlight” should win SAG and PGA, but I think all “The Revenant” needs is a push from a DGA win to secure its victory. If “The Revenant” wins PGA? Well, then it’s over.

Oscar: Final Nomination Predictions – 2016

spotlight-movie-2015-reviewsOscar: Final Nomination Predictions – 2016

Well here they are.

It’s been a very different year for award predictions, but thanks for baring with me. The nominations will be announced next week, and I feel very confident in my predictions.

At this stage, it definitely looks like “Spotlight” is our winner, however I’d watch out for a Director/Picture split. Potentially Miller could get away with murder here, overcoming a genre-bias Academy.

Here are our final predictions and stay tuned for more from us as the season continues.

Awards: How the Awards Season will Start – NBR, NYFCC, LAFCA and more

thumbnail_23485Awards: How the Awards Season will Start – NBR, NYFCC, LAFCA, and more.

A lot of what happens in the pre-cursor awards will determine the outcome of the bigger ceremonies such as the Globes, SAG, Critics Choice, and the Oscars.

Before the end of the year we will have a couple of these. These predictions can be pretty bold cause many of these critics groups are fairly unpredictable.

We looked at the National Board of Review Award, the New York Film Critics Circle, the LA Film Critics Association, the Screen Actors Guild Nominees, and the Critics Choice Award Nominees.

These won’t be as detailed as our Globes or Oscar Predictions, but it’s still important to look at them anyway. Continue reading

Oscars: Post TIFF Oscar Predictions

2B8A1F6D00000578-0-True_story_The_movie_focuses_on_the_real_life_investigation_by_B-m-42_1440118129495Oscars: Post TIFF Oscar Predictions

The festivals aren’t quite over yet. The New York Film Festival will kick off with Robert Zemeckis’ “The Walk” on the 25th. Meanwhile, in this comforting interlude, we decided to go ahead and give our predictions a much needed makeover after these past revealing weeks.

What have we learned?

  • “Spotlight” is the real deal
  • Kaufman’s “Anomalisa” will rival “Inside Out.”
  • “The Danish Girl” was good, but with some lukewarm response.
  • “Beasts of No Nation”  and “Steve Jobs” are strong contenders, but are not likely are winners.
  • “The Hateful Eight” test screened to strong reactions, has an intermission “Gone with the Wind” style.
  • “The Martian” sounds like a strong crowd-pleaser, should nab some tech attention.
  • “Sicario” is a strong sleeper pick, as is “Son of Saul.”
  • “Room,” after a strong couple of showings, will likely earn Brie Larson an actress nomination.
  • Cate Blanchett will rival Cate Blanchett after two strong performances in both “Carol” and “Truth”
  • “Suffragette,” “Freeheld,” “Our Brand is Crisis,” and “I Saw the Light.” all fall off quite a bit after low to mixed responses.

Oscars: Who’s winning in 2016?

joyheaderOscars: Who’s winning in 2016?

We’re just about half a year away from the 2016 Oscar ceremony. We have periodically kept our Oscar predictions up to date, but at this point we’d like to try and make the early call – Who’s winning this thing?

Thing may be looking identical to the 2015 Oscar ceremony, with Alejandro G. Iñárritu coming out with another visual impressive film: “The Revenant” which is looking more and more like our front-runner. Also with Eddie Redmayne with a strong lead role for “The Danish Girl.”

With that, three of our above-the-line categories will be repeats. Not to mention the strong potential of cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki prevailing for “The Revenant” as well.

But let’s take this one category at a time: Continue reading

Oscars: Updated Predictions – August

TWC — The Hateful Eight

Oscars: Updated Predictions – July

With the new, stunning list of films premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, we thought it was about time we go through and update our Oscar Predictions.

Truthfully though, not much has changed. “The Revenant” still looks strong, The Weinstein Company still has “Carol” and “The Hateful Eight.” “Star Wars” seems like it could nail a lot of the technical categories along with Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies.”

Once TIFF and Telluride kick off we will have a whole new enlightenment on what is to come, but for now here are our best guesses:
